China reveals its latest man-made waterfall
China has just unveiled a man-made waterfall in the city of Kunming in Yunnan province. The structure took about three years to construct and spans about ۱,۳۰۰ft wide with a beautiful skyline of Kunming as a backdrop. The project was about 1.1 billion yuan (roughly 170 million US dollars) to build and features a small park with viewing areas that are free to the public.

The man-made waterfall was designed to divert water from the Niulan River into Dianchi Lake, making a title as the biggest freshwater lake in Yunnan while pumping out about 10.6 million cubic feet of fresh water into the lake.
